If I understood your issue, you should not try to get an ip address
within the guest machine until the host one is configured well.  I
suggest you to configure the host machine using a command like this:

VBoxManage modifyvm "Name of your Machine" --bridgeadapter1 eth0

where eth0 is the host interface you are using.  You also can manage
the network configuration using the GUI shipped with the package.  Let
me point you to the official user manual instructions:
